STATE OF AFFAIRS 02/24/11: In the early 1960’s one book revolutionized a generation of American women. The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan pulled no punches in talking about the state of women’s lives and inspiring those women to fight for equality. In her recent book, author Stephanie Coontz looks at the effects of Betty Friedan’s writing & activism, how the message of Mystique has stood the test of time, and how the feminist movement has grown and changed over the last forty years.
